(The Center Square) -

Several illegal immigrants suspected of beating New York City police officers were arrested Monday evening in Phoenix.

Immigration and Customs Enforcement sources told Fox News they were at arrested by ICE and Homeland Security officials at a Greyhound bus station.

The identities of the suspects arrested have not been released, and it's unclear whether any or all of them were among the four who were initially arrested in the mob beating recently in Times Square, then fled the city after not being held on bail. 

They four were allegedly headed to California after the incident, on tickets provided by a church-affiliated nonprofit after receiving zero-bail release, according to reporting from the New York Post.

The migrants were released on their own recognizance because Manhattan District Attorney Alvin Bragg did not request bail because he didn't have enough solid evidence to keep them.
